Information Technology (IT) is an evolving interdisciplinary subject that has been driven and shaped by the rapid development of computing, communication, and Internet‐related technologies and their tremendous impact on our daily lives. In contrast to the more traditional Information Systems discipline, Information Technology deals with the development, utilization, interrelation, and confluence of computers, networking, telecommunication, business, and technology management in the context of the global Internet. As we enter the Information Age of the 21st century, society will be increasingly dependent on Information Technology and demand for IT professionals will remain high throughout the decades to come.
BS in Information Technology
The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology program at New Mexico Tech is administered jointly by the Computer Science and Management programs in the Computer Science & Engineering department.
The curriculum includes relevant computer science, management, and engineering courses and emphasizes secure information systems and information assurance that are among the areas of research at Tech’s Institute for Complex Additive Systems Analysis (ICASA) where IT students may find employment or internship opportunities.
Students must also take a sequence of 12 hours of technical electives to broaden or deepen their knowledge in an IT area of their interest.
